Hallo Anne,
That is the problem with most photographers, myself included. We always want to go for the extraordinary. Here you captured a common flower in all it's splendor and beauty. The flowers coming from the side of your frame in excellent clarity and the yellow OOF flowers in the BG gives that "special enhancement" to this composition. Well done my friend.
Best regards and enjoy your week,

Hello Anne,
Beautiful POV with selective sharpness and natural colour made it beautiful.It's looking really natural.BG is nice too and successfully isolated the subject.
Thanks for sharing,
Kind regards,

Dear Anne,
your ability to make a splendid image out of a small patch of flowers is again proven with this photo.

The colours are magnificent, the details sharp,and the yellow marks interspersed with the lilac flowers add interest to the picture.
Do the leaves actually smell of sage?

Thanks for sharing.
